Meet the RTÉ Cór na nÓg
RTÉ Cór na nÓg was founded in 1987 and consists of 65 children aged 10-15. The choir provides expert musical training and is keen to emphasise the enjoyment of music-making as well as the hard work and commitment required by its members. Their unique relationship with RTÉ leads to varied and exciting performance opportunities with regular broadcasts on national radio and television and collaborations with artists of the highest calibre.
In recent years the choir has sung on RTÉ lyric fm, RTÉ Radio 1, the Late Late Toy Show, Mass on Sunday and Fair City and they regularly perform in venues such as the National Concert Hall, the O2 Arena, St Patrick's Cathedral and Áras an Uachtarain. Recent concerts have included Pucinni's La Boheme with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and RTÉ Philharmonic Choir, and appearing as special guests with the world's best selling classical artist, Andre Rieu. Their traditional free St Patrick's Day concert in Dublin is always a hugely enjoyable occasion for choir members, family and friends!
Recordings include Gerard Victory's Ultima Rerum, the highly praised CD/Video Faith of Our Fathers and a CD of Christmas music produced for RTÉ lyric fm and the RTÉ Guide.
Auditions for the new September intake are advertised on radio and throughout schools in January and usually held in March. More information is available through the Choral Officer:
